Method

  1. Step 1

    Combine the grapefruit juice and lime juice in a shallow metal container. Cover with foil and place in the freezer for 3 hours or until frozen.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, combine sugar and 1/4 cup (60ml) water in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until sugar dissolves. Cook for a further 2 mins or until syrup thickens slightly. Set aside to cool completely.

  3. Step 3

    Use a fork to coarsely crush the frozen grapefruit mixture. Transfer three-quarters of the mixture to a blender. Add the sugar syrup, tequila, Cointreau and ice. Blend until smooth.
  4. Step 4

    Place the jelly crystals on a plate. Rub the rim of each serving glass with the lime wedge. Dip in the jelly crystals to coat.
  5. Step 5

    Pour margarita mixture evenly among glasses. Top with the chilli, if using, grapefruit and lime slices. Spoon over the remaining crushed grapefruit mixture. Serve immediately.
